this is an interesting question from a variety of perspectives;  as med. director of Occ health, I don't think our institution is handling this well;  if the resident is going on an approved educational experience, it seems like in ways, the "house"  should provide for their pre-care.  as it is, at our institution, travelers are referred to an on-site but  uncovered [because our employee insurance specifically excludes travel] travel clinic.   ironically, this is also me.   this is something we may need to review.  I would encourage an occ health department to be aware that prescription for travel is not necessarily a very simple activity, and one that requires access to the patients full medical and drug history, [in addition to the ever-changing risk patterns for different diseases around the world, which medical travelers will directly engage in, it's not a simple question of looking at a website, and some of the required or recommended vaccines may be incredibly expensive to have on hand]   so again, it is not an easy issue to think through

Do any academic medical center EH/OH programs service Graduate Medical Trainees before/after they travel internationally?

If so, what services do you offer before/after?
